Halaman 37 - In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
Halaman 66 - ALGERNON. You have invented a very useful younger brother called Ernest, in order that you may be able to come up to town as often as you like. I have invented an invaluable permanent invalid called Bunbury, in order that I may be able to go down into the country whenever I choose.
Halaman 71 - Mr Worthing, I confess I feel somewhat bewildered by what you have just told me. To be born, or at any rate, bred in a handbag, whether it had handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life that remind one of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.
Halaman 71 - Me, sir! What has it to do with me? You can hardly imagine that I and Lord Bracknell would dream of allowing our only daughter — a girl brought up with the utmost care — to marry into a cloakroom, and form an alliance with a parcel?
Halaman 247 - They're all gone now, and there isn't anything more the sea can do to me. . . . I'll have no call now to be up crying and praying when the wind breaks from the south, and you can hear the surf is in the east, and the surf is in the west, making a great stir with the two noises, and they hitting one on the other. I'll have no call now to be going down and getting Holy Water in the dark nights after Samhain, and I won't care what way the sea is when the other women will be keening.
Halaman 69 - A very good age to be married at. I have always been of opinion that a man who desires to get married should know either everything or nothing. Which do you know?
Halaman 69 - Do you smoke? JACK. Well, yes, I must admit I smoke. LADY BRACKNELL. I am glad to hear it. A man should always have an occupation of some kind.
Halaman 72 - ALGERNON. (Raising his hat.) You are my little cousin Cecily, I'm sure. CECILY. You are under some strange mistake. I am not little. In fact, I believe I am more than usually tall for my age. (ALGERNON is rather taken aback.) But I am your cousin Cecily. You, I see from your card, are Uncle Jack's brother, my cousin Ernest, my wicked cousin Ernest. ALGERNON. Oh! I am not really wicked at all, cousin Cecily. You mustn't think that I am wicked. CECILY.
Halaman 80 - On the morning of the day you mention, a day that is for ever branded on my memory, I prepared as usual to take the baby out in its perambulator. I had also with me a somewhat old, but capacious handbag, in which I had intended to place the manuscript of a work of fiction that I had written during my few unoccupied hours. In a moment of mental abstraction...
Halaman 278 - Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned.: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
